We understand that continuing to live independently within our own homes can become progressively difficult as we get older, and put a strain on the family and friends dedicating themselves to helping loved ones who need increasing levels of care and support. Excelcare-Types-of-Care-Residential-Care-Inside-Image.jpgThings which were once easy such as getting out of bed and to the toilet safely, having a wash, cooking and cleaning can become a real burden. 

Receiving support with everyday tasks, whilst maintaining choice and as much independence as possible, is where residential care can really lighten the strain and ease worry. 

Within a residential care home, someone takes care of the washing, home-cooking and cleaning whilst trained and skilled carers are on-hand 24/7 to provide care and support people to lead a high quality of life. This team of dedicated people support with things such as personal care, help to get in and out of chairs and bed safely, administering medication, and spotting changes in someone’s health and wellbeing needs so remedial action can be taken.

At Excelcare, we have a variety of care homes, many of which provide residential care, either solely or as well as other care types such as nursing care or care for people living with dementia.

Many people who come to live in one of our residential care homes have become increasingly lonely and isolated within their own home, often despite the valiant efforts and dedication of friends and family. 

The community spirit within our care homes, coupled with environments which support people to get around more easily and regain some independence, can have a hugely positive effect on people’s wellbeing.

With a variety of activities, chances to try new things in a safe and comfortable home, and visits from entertainers, groups and children from the local community, there is always something going on if people want to get involved. And, there are opportunities to make new friends with fellow people living in the home who have common interests and experiences. 

We support and encourage residents’ family and friends to continue to play an active part in their loved one’s life too. Many find they regain precious, quality time together as they can sit and chat, enjoy a meal or take part in an activity together whilst our dedicated teams take care of the rest.

At Excelcare, we thrive on creating warm, welcoming and safe residential care homes, with caring teams of professionals on-hand to provide person-centred care – supporting people to spend their time doing the things that bring them joy and living a life well-lived.
